Perhaps, coincidentally, as interest in smartphone adoption and mobile feature creep appear to be waning with the average consumer, Samsung and others are heading into this 2019 CES convention with some new takes on tried and true technologies. This practically gives you the screen real estate of two QHD monitors fused together. With a curved 4K UHD display, it's great for those photographers and videographers who need high resolution and color clarity. And because it only needs to clamp onto your desk, you don't need to drill holes in the wall or use a wall mount - making the Space Monitor a compelling choice for people with testy landlords.
On top of the increase in resolution, this 32:9 ultra, ultra-wide monitor features a 120Hz refresh rate, 1,000 nit peak brightness, HDR10 support, FreeSync 2 HDR technology and 1,800 R curvature that feels as if it threatens to engulf you as you sit in front of it. We don't yet know what input options the monitor will feature.
Another monitor Samsung revealed ahead of CES 2019 is the Samsung Space Monitor (the company's fond of celestial branding).
Samsung describes the UR59C as the world's first 32-inch curved 4K UHD monitor for content creators.
Samsung hasn't unveiled the monitor's price yet, but displays like this could challenge the high-end G-Sync enabled displays that Nvidia has been talking up as solutions for ultra-well-heeled gamers.

That arm allows you to tilt and extend the display, from pushing it right up against a wall to making it seemingly rest on the desk. Both the Space Monitor and UR59C are now available for preorder on Best Buy, Amazon, and Samsung's website, but users will have to wait until later this year to get their hands on the CRG9.
Equivalent to two 27-inch QHD 16:9 monitors placed side-by-side, the 32:9 super ultra-wide screen also provides ultimate multitasking flexibility assisted by PBP (Picture-by-Picture) functionality to allow two video sources to be viewed on the same screen.
The power and HDMI cables are routed through the back of the stand, which helps reduce clutter on your desk.
It comes in Dark Blue Grey and features a slim design with a depth of just 6.7mm.
No pricing for the display was announced.
